I received my B.S. degree in Computer Science from Kuwait University in 2005. After graduation, I worked as a software developer for few years before pursuing my graduate studies. In 2011, I moved to New York City to pursue master’s degree in the City College of New York (CCNY-CUNY). I received my M.S. degree in Computer Science from CCNY in 2013. One year after that, I received an admission offer from UB into Ph.D. Computer Science and Engineering program for fall 2014 semester and moved to Buffalo since then.
During my graduate studies at CCNY, I was a member of research group that worked mainly in the fields of data structures, algorithms, and computational geometry. By the time I got master’s degree, my research interest has shifted to systems field. Upon receiving my PhD admission offer and considering my research options at UB, I have decided to work with Professor Geoffrey Challen in the systems field. I joined blue Systems Research Group during my first semester at UB and contributed to the maybe uncertainty-based adaptation project during spring 2015 semester. Currently, I’m working on Recognize Personal Device Usage Patterns using wearable device sensors project.
